Dani Wilde was the sole person who glued her family together. It doesn’t matter if her dreams of attending Columbia and live a normal college life came to a halt. She was needed by her family, and she came back for them.
But now, her brothers have settled down, and it was time for her to make her dreams of going to New York come true. She will go there, nothing will stop her this time, not even an old flame.
Ben Denton is coming back home, alongside the daughter who was pushed into him by an ex. He didn’t know what to do with a kid, he didn’t know how to act around her. He was trying, and his latest action was to bring his daughter back to Montana. He spent some of his childhood there, and he knew it would be a great place to raise his four-year old daughter. But will coming back home be enough for him to figure out if he was cut out to be a father?
Dani tries to figure out what she really wants in life, was it going to New York or staying with her family? She was finally getting some memories from her past – memories she didn’t know exists, especially the truth about her own mother. Talk about a surprising turn-out of events.
What I love about Dani is her big, generous heart. She took care of everyone and did it flawlessly. I don’t think her brothers would be where they are right now if it wasn’t for her. She forgot about herself, about her happiness, her dreams. I was glad she was finally given a chance of going to New York and making her dreams come true. But it was not that simple.
And what I love most about this book is that it is more than just romance (which is really sweet, by the way!), it talks about family. Their relationship – the ups and downs, the perfections and imperfections, the struggles. They may argue at times, they may have some misunderstanding, but at the end of the day – you’re family would always be with you. Supporting you and wanting nothing but the best for you. Although there would ALWAYS be some exceptions: it was just sad both Ben and Dani experienced it.
Ben – he may have some hesitations at first, but after Dani gave her some tips and support – he was at it like a pro. I mean playing dolls with his four year old daughter: it was just priceless. Pretty much adorable and one of my most favorite scenes in the book!
Even though it broke my heart a bit, I was glad of Dani’s decision – she needed it. It needed to be done not just for her, but for their relationship to go on. I was just crossing my fingers that she’d decide fast before Ben changes his mind!
I was surprised that this one is a stand-alone, considering Dani has some interesting brothers. Kim Law, I’d love to read about their happy endings as well, would you consider it?
